Innsbruck / Seefeld (Day 11 – 14)

We arrived at Munich at 5.30am after travelling 12 hours in the night train from Budapest the night before. On arrival, since it was still early, the car rental office had not open. We had our breakfast in the Starbucks while waiting for the car rental office to open.  After breakfast, we pick up our car and traveled 2 hours to Seefeld.

After a 2 hours driving through a number of small quaint town, we arrived at Seefeld.

 

We booked an apartment which is just at the nursery slope.

It was a nice 2 bedroom apartment overseeing the nursery ski slope.  Everyone was happy with the accommodation for the next 4 days.

It has a nice kitchen, which has been using it to cook nice yummy meals after a long day of ski or tour.

The accommodation was good as parents could rest in the comfort indoor while we can see Jaydon having his ski lesson on the nursery slope.

Upon loading our luggage in the apartment, we hit for the slope for our ski lesson.

We have initially booked for 3 days of  full day ski school for Jaydon. However, since it was early ski season, there were only 2 kids on the slope, therefore, it was changed to 3 days of half day ski for Jaydon.

While Jaydon, has his lesson, I too, had my lesson on the slope.

Jaydon had 3 days of sking in the morning. By the end of the third day, he is having fun in the snow with his ski buddy.

He is also confident and happy going down the slope.

The School gave a medal to Jaydon upon completing this 3 days lesson. A nice gesture to encourage the kid.
